The art and science of facilitating business change through the power of workplace networks and resource groups


Usually set up by the organisation itself to improve business performance and embed disability confidence within the company culture. They are sometimes called Steering, Advisory or Working Groups.

Peer group or alumni networks

Generally created by disabled people to offer others support and guidance on managing an impairment or health condition while thriving at work. Peer group networks often include professional development components.

Consultation forums

Primarily set up to act as a consultation group or a forum for the organisation to test out the development of policies, practices and procedures. They are usually led by business working with disabled employees.

Fusion networks

Fusion networks (we've coined a new term here) combine elements of the other three types of network and at different times in different organisations each network function will take the lead in driving cultural change.

Whichever type of network you identify with most we’re here to help you navigate the art and science of Networkology and to build individual disability confidence at work.
